    Malaysians are used to Mamak, the one place that we go to in the middle of the night when everything else closes. While they don't usually serve banana leaf rice, Restoran Alif decides to do just that. As one of the resident Indian Muslim restaurant in Kuantan that offers the usual Mamak menu, one could also satisfy their Banana Leaf Rice cravings here. A set would come with three vegetable sides for free, acar and papadum, and one could also add a type of meat to the dish if one so prefers. The curry is delightful, the side dishes are rich and flavourful, plus the crunch from the papadums, and you have a yourself a worthy meal. 
    Tips

    Make sure to clearly say your order as there have been cases where they've gotten it wrong.

    Things to expect

    Service that is a bit nonchalant.

    Best with
